New Lobo football coach Bob Davie and the University of New Mexico Lobo football staff (recently completed staff we should say) hosted 19 student athletes the past weekend and the verbal commitments are starting to roll in for Davie.
Today's "Eye" falls on Cherry Creek High School (Englewood CO) and 6'5 240 TE Christian Rebhun
"I committed to the University of New Mexico this weekend," says Rebhun. "Before I went I didn't think I would like it, but when I got there I just loved it! The facilities were crazy. It is so nice and so like Denver I'm close to the mountains and that is why I loved it so much."
So why New Mexico? "Coach Davie," replied Rebhun. "The way he talked to me he is a nice guy, but he talked to me about the future of New Mexico as well. He talked about changing the program back to a disciplined, hard-nosed, strap up and hit people team. He plans for the future is that we have to be all in, now that his coaches are here they are here for the long run they want to get the program turned around."
Rebhun couldn't stop talking about Coach Davie, "I really like the assistants the entire staff is very cool and his (Davie) background really helped for me to make my decision."
So Christian what kind of players are you? What are your strengths? "My strengths are blocking," replied Rebhun. "I didn't get the ball much in high school. I feel I can make plays didn't really get the chance to, but blocking is my strong point."
With that said Christian Rebhun knows exactly what he needs to do this upcoming summer and as he moves down to Albuquerque. "Lifting! I have still yet to really lift and that is my goal to get bigger and stronger. I'm about 245 right now I want to get to 260."
When asked if he had any words for Lobo Nation.
"I'm ready to be a Lobo, Look for me in the future I'm really excited."
